30-Watt and 100-Watt Active
We designed our 100-watt power cord for those components that consume between 30 and 100 watts average continuous  power, i.e., CD and DVD players and transports, D/A converters, phono and line stage preamps, FM tuners, surround sound and video processors. But for components that consume 30 watts or less,  e.g., phono motors and controllers, D/A converters, phono preamps and other very low power components, consider using our 30 Watt Planar Power Cord. Our beta testers have been blown away by the improvement even over our 100 watt power cords. See your owner’s manual to determine the power draw of your component or contact your manufacturer. 

The 100-watt rating allows us to use ribbons one fourth as thin as our 900-Watt cords thus further reducing the smearing of skin effect. The dimensions and processing protocols for this ribbon are optimized for its 100-watt rating. Otherwise it uses the same shield, dielectric, AC and IEC plugs and multi-polymer dielectric as our 900-watt power cord. 

For the 30-watt power cords we use 300 micro-inch ribbons, the same type ribbon we use in our Ebony interconnects but optimized for its 30 watt power rating. It will handle 60-watt peaks.  Otherwise it uses the same shield, dielectric, AC and IEC plugs and multi-polymer dielectric as our 900-watt and 100-watt power cords. 

Our 30-watt and 100-Watt active power cords use pure copper ribbons with optimized geometry and processing protocols to transfer power between the source of power and your components.  Each ribbon is insulated using the same multi-polymer film used in our interconnects. We designed our AC plug to sound better than anything else we could find, including hospital-grade plugs and other such devices that use unnecessarily large amounts of bad sounding dielectrics. 

Our silver-plated fine copper braid on the outside shields and protects without adding more dielectric. Our IEC socket uses minimal dielectric and compression connections instead of solder. The compression fittings float in their compartments so that they’re loosely coupled to the polymer dielectric and are mostly surrounded by air. 

This combination of features assures that our power cords achieve the same high standards of time domain fidelity as our interconnects. Our 30-watt and 100-Watt Active Power Cords will make your low power components sound better than you’ve ever heard them. The 900W version is best suited for higher power applications like amplifiers and power strips. Please take the time to check your component's power consumption and also get the right directionality, RED or BLUE, for the best possible sound (discussed below and under 'Absolute Phase/Directionality' along with other helpful information on our home page).

Our active power cords are identical to their passive counterparts except they use a 9-volt bias voltage from a battery and network supply box.  The bias applied to the shield further reduces the residual smearing effects from our already minimal multi-polymer dielectric. With the reduction of smearing, the impact on the sound is immediately obvious; micro dynamics and transients are reproduced with greater clarity, backgrounds become blacker and more solid. Leading and trailing edges are more like live and have an excitement and presence you must hear to believe. 

The battery/network box is finely crafted from bird’s eye or curly maple, which further contributes to clean sound and looks great too. 

Our new Tau Series AC plugs will replace our black rectangular rubber plugs when our current stock runs out. They are available now as an option at an additional cost of $120.00 (pictures coming soon).  The Tau Series AC plugs improve every aspect of the musical presentation in the same way as our T-O Series RCA plugs do for our interconnects: more accurate leading and trailing edges, more accurate instrument voicing, better focused sound stage. The Tau Series AC plugs truly bring you closer to the music. 

How can an AC plug make this much difference? They significantly reduce smearing that arises from dielectric and skin effects. Pure thin-walled brass contacts with linear connection to the power cord ribbons. Our proprietary dielectric is the same we use in our T-O Series RCA plugs. It has the most transparent sound we have ever heard in a dielectric. Yet it provides high safety margins for handling the high voltages and currents associated with line level power.

Additional Information
Omega Mikro Planar Power Cables bring out better instrument and image focus, detail, controlled transients and a sense of realism from your system that is closer to live music and the movie theater experience.  That such improvements can be attributed to a power cable may be astonishing – but hearing and seeing is believing. If you are not satisfied you may return the cable to your dealer, in original condition, within 30 days of purchase for a full refund.

Versions and Directionality: 
Omega Mikro Planar Power Cables come as active or passive versions and in either Red or Blue directionality. Your choice between the passive and active versions depends on your performance vs. cost preference. The active version costs more but sounds better than the passive version. 

The choice between Red or Blue directionality depends on the particular component you are connecting to the power grid. We can provide you with a Red or Blue cable for your specific component based on his or her experience or will provide one of each so you can determine which sounds better. Select the one you want and return the other (in original condition) to us.

The only technical difference between the Red and Blue options is in the crystal grain orientation of the copper ribbon conductors. We have developed a proprietary annealing and rolling protocol for making these ribbons sound great and use the same ribbon – but in opposite direction - for the Red and Blue options. We minimize dielectric and skin effects to reduce smearing. The active version takes another step to further reduce smearing by better controlling the dielectric properties of the insulation.
